I have been looking for a Good IDE to replace Dreamweaver for a while now. I don't use 99% of the stuff in dreamweaver, only the code view and file / site manager. However i do really like the software and a few of the features. I was looking for something that would across both Linux and Windows, which Dreamweaver doesn't (i know i can use Wine, but i'd rather run something natively then through a windows emulator, and virutalbox seems overkill for one application). I did settle on Netbeans for a while because i could run it on Linux. I have recently come across sublime and im gutted i didnt come across it earlier. It runs great under both Linux and Windows, it's lightweight, fast and i love the dark theme and clean UI.
I am seriously considering buying a copy of Sublime, regardless of what's written below, however im just wondering if any of the following features are available in Sublime though, as i use them quite a lot in Dreamweaver.
1) When using Dreamweaver in code view, you can select some text and press CTRL+T, this allows you to wrap your selection in a HTML tag, when you are adding formatting to plain text, such as adding
and tags to the text, it makes this process really quick and easy when you have a large amount of text to work with.
2) Duplicating Files with Dreamweaver through the file manager is simple, you select your file or folder and hit CTRL+D, your selection is then duplicated. When i am setting up files for a new site, it's easier to create a new file, then hit CTRL+D 6 times, then it is to right click and do 'New File' 7 times. Again another lazy thing, but it does help save a bit of time.
If i can currently do these things through sublime (i am using the latest version) how can i go about doing this? If not would it be possible to build these features in at some point, as they seem like fairly small, but useful additions.
Eitherway, i really like sublime, kudos to the Dev team for their great work!
